  • Tom P makes a great defence of public sector pensions from Paul Ormerod’s attack
  • Richard Murphy finds that HMT endorses TUC estimate of tax gap
  • Top post from Sunder Katwala on the politics of bonuses. He is absolutely right about the angry middle.
  • Among the multiple tax announcements in today’s PBR was a committment to create a new Hidden Economy Advisory Group to consider what actions HMRC can take to increase the number of people that make the transition from the hidden to the formal economy. The group is described as an opportunity to utilise external expertise in these areas, and to re-consider the issue of informal work ten years on from the Government’s first action in this area when the Grabiner Report was published – this is good news.
  • Two weeks ago, Left Foot Forward set out five ‘red lines’ for a progressive pre-Budget report. What are the scores on the doors?
  • Community Links raise some concerns about the Better Off In Work Credit roll out
  • The November 2009 update of Social Policy Digest is now available online, providing up-to-date listings of policy developments, practice changes, research reports and publications in the whole range of social policy areas, complete with links to original documents and related comment/press coverage. The archive of material, dating back to 2002, now contains some 24,000 items and is also available online. The Digest is now a freely accessible resource.
